Eisner Original Ink Illustration Art
�Computer Language� by Will Eisner (1973).
[COBAL was one of the
oldest programming languages].
No. 10 of thirteen little known
illustrations Eisner drew for the book Freedom�s Edge: The
Computer Threat to Society by Milton R. Wessel
(published in 1974 by Addison-Wesley). Created at a time when computers
were giant-size Univac contraptions and viewed by many, including the
book�s author, as a �threat to society,� these images are clearly
anachronistic in the age of laptops, but that�s part of the charm.
and ink on Bristol board (if the style looks different than the Eisner
look you are accustomed to, keep in mind that the vast majority of
Will�s art was done with brush, not pen).
10 inches wide x 6 3/8 inches
high. Signed. $250
Provenance: Warranted to be from the Will Eisner estate, which
